Taking Advantage of Summer Break! School Assignments - June 2017

Summer Assignments

Dear Students:

Summer break is of course, a wonderful time to recharge, rest and play...  The school break however, also offers a wonderful opportunity to expand your horizons in a different way - dive leisurely into books...  prepare yourself for next school year, or review topics of the year that just finished...

Your teachers have carefully prepared a list of recommended books and a few other assignments to work on, at your pace, during these long summer months!

Enjoy and have a restful summer!

Final Assembly and After School Dance Program - June 6, 2017

On June 6, 2017 the Theater at ACS Athens welcomed, for the last time this year, the Elementary School having its General Assembly...

Faculty and students were enthusiastic and excited to attend and participate in the celebration!

A "Talent Show": a student sang (a capella!), and that was followed by another student at the piano.   The General Assembly recognized "Citizens of the Month" in all grades, and presented the "Start Club" which had collected money for an animal shelter!  A performance with hula hoop rings followed and the Assembly concluded with the much anticipated "After School Dance Program" performance.

Ms. Katerina Mitakou organized a great final show and all students were spectacular in ballet and in dancing the tango!

  Enjoy this photo gallery from the event; or, visit us in flickr.

  We also have for you two videos from the Elementary School's final General Assembly meeting...
